Dental Nerve Damage Claims
A trip to the dentist is a common occurrence to most. Whether it’s an annual check-up or an emergency visit to fix an issue that needs urgent attention, many of us see our dentists on a regular basis.
Depending on the severity of your issue, the treatment could be particularly invasive or relatively straightforward. The mouth and oral cavity are areas of the body with particularly high densities of nerve-endings.
Nerve injuries caused by dental treatment are unfortunately common, and while there is generally some level of risk involved with a variety of dental treatments, from time to time some people suffer unnecessarily due to the negligent behaviour of their dentist.
If you have experienced unnecessary suffering as a result of nerve injury caused by dental negligence or sub-standard work, you could be entitled to compensation and should talk to the Dental Malpractice Solicitors at Grieves Solicitors at the earliest convenience.
Nerve Injury Explained
Although there are many different types of nerve injuries they all typically involve a nerve being damaged during a dental procedure. This can cause permanent damage, which cannot be fixed through further treatments.
If your injury is permanent, then you should expect higher levels of compensation settlement, if there is debate as to the level of damage, the team at Grieves Solicitors can call upon independent dental health expertise to help argue our case. Even if your injury can be treated and corrected you are still entitled to claim compensation for any pain and suffering and financial losses you may have incurred, including costs for corrective medical treatments to be carried out privately,
Nerve injuries can be quite painful and, in certain circumstances, they can lead to other complications. If you believe you have suffered nerve damage as a result of dental negligence, you should consider seeking legal advice in order to get the compensation that you deserve.
Treating Nerve Damage Injuries
Although, in many severe cases nerve injuries cannot be treated due to the damage caused being permanent, in certain cases further treatment can be advised to fix the damage.
It entirely depends on your individual circumstances and the level of damage that you have suffered. If your injuries are reversible, the person responsible for causing them will very likely be responsible for covering all the costs of any future treatments.
There isn’t one treatment suitable for all types of injuries, so you will likely be advised which route to take in order to treat your injury.
Preventing Nerve Damage Injury
Preventing nerve damage injury isn’t always possible, as there are risks associated with any dental procedure. it is obviously worth taking time to research which dentists to use for more complex dental needs and then ensure you are choosing a reputable dentist to carry out your treatments.
Of course, this advice is of no use if you are already suffering. Some Dental Malpractice Claims we work on involve dentists practicing without the proper qualifications to carry out intensive and invasive procedures.
How much compensation can I expect?
There is no simple way of calculating how much compensation you are entitled to as each individual case is different. There are various factors that come into play, such as the severity of your injury and the costs of further treatment if required.
When your case is being investigated, you will be asked to provide all the details in order for it to be determined whether you are entitled to anything, and if so how much you can receive.
